Boomkat Product Review:
Ono and Generic Greeting Collective’s lovely seasonal mixtape series culminates with sweetly compatible selections of avant and folksy, soulful selections by young composer Jack Sheen and Daniel Trudeau a.k.a. Pregnant, respectively.
On the A-side, highly regarded composer and conductor Jack Sheen leaves the baton and scores at home to smudges a fine mix of tracks ranging from Jeremiah Jae to Peder Mannerfelt, Laurie Tompkins, Mark Leckey, Rhythm & Sound and Alan Lamb, among many others, following a fine, drizzly logic that perfectly suits days and nights holed up in Manchester while the sky pisses and spits outside.
For the B-side, Daniel Trudeau, who’s maybe better known as Pregnant, weaves together more fractured, folk wise picks following a silvery thread of logic around the world and taking in gems by Arthur Russell, Jon Hassell, Fred Frith & Iva Bitova, Charushii ft. Golden Donna, and himself, naturally.
